Statewide, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Tuesday that New York's rate of positive tests was below 1% for the 12th straight day.  

"For the 12th straight day, our rate of positive COVID tests was under one percent, which is great news," Cuomo said in a media release. "We went from one of the worst situations in the nation to the best, all thanks to the hard work of New Yorkers and our data-driven, phased reopening.

"The reason we're doing well is because we're being smart. If people's behavior doesn't remain disciplined, we're going to have a problem and you'll see the numbers change," he said. "COVID is not over by any stretch of the imagination. We must protect our progress, both from the growing cases across the nation and lack of compliance within our state. We cannot go backwards, and it is up to all of us to slow the spread by continuing to wear our masks and socially distance, and localities must enforce compliance."
